A close up of a part of the structure of the Golden Gate bridge. The bridge is held up by cables such as these that are made up of wires. The total length of the wires that are used in the bridge is 80,000 miles (128,747 kilometers).
This is an image taken from the Golden Gate Bridge of a container ship (the Manda of Honolulu, Hawaii) that has just passed beneath it and now is entering San Francisco Bay. In the background is the Bay Bridge that extends from San Francisco to Oakland
A general view of San Francisco Bay taken from the bridge. The ship from the previous image has gone further into the Bay with (from left to right) Alcatraz Island, with its former prison, the Bay Bridge and the city of San Francisco toward the background.
